PREFACE.



This volume contains the remainder of the docu-
ments relating to the Union Era, or period during
which New York and New Jersey were in charge of
the same governors, which were thought, by the
Editor, worthy of preservation in this form. The
remaining volumes will commence with the adminis-
tration of Governor Lewis Morris in 1738, and include
the whole of the Provincial Era, ending with the War
of Independence.
